Moon King, the project of Toronto native Daniel Benjamin, has made the transition from shoegaze to indie disco with surprising grace. With his new LP, Voice of Lovers, just a few weeks away, Benjamin is sharing his latest ass-shaker, 'Come Away With Me.'

Created by mona on the radio & Xavier MC, the song's video shows people all over -- from the restaurant to the garage to the school -- getting down to 'Come Away With Me.' And I have to say, I can't blame them. While I'm confined to a desk at my day job, I still found myself bouncing in my seat to the song's delightful mix of propulsive synths, airy vocals and cowbell-infused percussion. This is one of those songs that makes it awful hard to sit still.

According to Benjamin, the track "is musically inspired by Cake's 'Short Skirt Long Jacket,' and lyrically by frequent trips to Montreal with a bunch of Detroit party maniacs."

Check out the video for Moon King's 'Come Away With Me,' taken from the upcoming Voice of Lovers, due out on April 2 via Arbutus Records. You can buy or stream the song here. Moon King also has some upcoming tour dates, which can viewed down below.
